apocalypse and retail consumer strong and it's exactly what we expected. the first quarter was disappointing because the tax cuts and job's act hadn't kicked in yet, they had more money in pockets and what they are spending on paint, cosmetics all of which are discretionary items which tells you have confident consumer. >> you mentioned tax cuts and we see that kick in but also wages are higher, unemployment is lower, do you see any potential threats out to those issues and whether it's wage pressure or job losses right now? >> yeah, i think there are threats to the economy maybe later in the year but right now what's happened is we finally we saw decoupling in the beginning to have year where we didn't see consumer shopping, now they are there and the concern i have longer term is we are mounting a lot of consumer debt, we have seen growth in consumer debt, the auto sector, credit card
sector, the household revolving sector, if consumers start feeling them, enthusiasim is catching up with them and preliminaries are very strong. >> you mentioned household borrowing $13.3 trillion and what context is that, do you think it's actually something that we should be concerned about or do you think that we have a healthy economy or stronger gdp. >> what's interesting the headline number of 13 plus billion -- trillion dollars excuse me is very large but as percentage of gdp is 65% and you compare to where it's been in past cycles where it's been mid-80's, it's not that strong, what concerns me the components of it. in the past household debt was mortgage related, right now it's actually not. the growth in mortgage-related household debt is slower than credit card debt and auto debt, those are the ones that are most
sensitive to rate increases and we are heading into a period at some point of rising interest rates, do i worry about that. cheryl: one thing i want to ask you about because of the real estate side which is specialty and practice, we haven't seen hustled home sales have been under pressure, does that surprise you? >> not really, only because this is inventory shortage problem, aye said before you can't buy a house that's not on the market for sale, we have seen a very, very slow amount of homes hitting the market and that's a generational shift as baby boomers just haven't been able to put homes on the market yet. cheryl: makes sense, appreciate it, sir. >> have a great weekend. cheryl: you too. lauren: fired nato, big as three football fields and scorching 3,000-degrees wrecking havoc in california, new details of fires out west and hollywood has new queen, highest paid actresses now and we will tell you who came out on top.

>> good morning, cheryl. cheryl: how hard it's to prove whether or not he knowingly misled investors with that tweet last week and then we are also finding out that they've been investigating him for possible false statements, misleading statements about production capabilities tat car company, how difficult is that if a legalese perspective to get him on that? >> very difficult, different possible litigations, civil litigation from people that lost, sec civil investigation, that's what we are talking about here and we are talking about the criminal investigation that could possibly flow, let's talk about the civil, yes, it's difficult, they would have to prove that he intentionally misrepresented, now we know from the wall street journal article there are two different areas, the 2017 protection statements about this bottle-necking that he explained as to why the production numbers fell below expectations and then this tweet, we've learned about this tweet, meetings with saudi
arabian banks, there's also the 7-independent board members that have come out and said we've had board meetings about going private. cheryl: let me ask you you mentioned the meetings with the saudis, would that be enough to satisfy regulators and he could, well, i had the meetings and we talked about taking the company private so i was not misleading anybody, can he use that as a defense? >> possibly. lauren and i talked about this last week but the language was very specific in the tweet financing secured. cheryl: got you. what's recently came out the financing was not secured, yes, there were discussions but there still had to be many different things to happen before the funding was actually approved. cheryl: well, i want to get into other legal troubles that he may be facing as well, shareholder losses, et cetera, listen what to the what charlie gasparino said yesterday about the litigation issue. >> one of their main worries in
addition to sec is private litigation and they are starting to think about how much potential liability exists in the private litigation if investors sued because claiming that they lost money based on musk's tweet, he has to admit some level of wrongdoing, that will ramp up litigation even more. cheryl: also was he specifically trying to hurt short-sellers on the stock which he has publicly complained about. >> sure, always complain about litigation, not just what they had to pay for shareholders but also expense. there's a recent suit filed this week, they are trying to get a class action suit, yes, actually expensive, however, i don't see musk actually admitting to defrauding. i could see sanctions, i could see a fine, i could see an investigation but for him to say it was my purpose to defraud i don't see it happening therefore i don't think it could be used
in civil action. cheryl: the board member lawyering up, those words could potentially be used against him in court, david. the story is going to continue. thanks for being here this morning, appreciate it. >> have a great friday. cheryl: you too. lauren: trump administration is threatening additional sanctions on turkey over detained u.s. pastor and preparing for renewed talks with china. investors weigh turkey and china, you think futures are in flat line mark? >> we were coming a strong session yesterday with best showing in four months. i think, you know, it's the dog days of summer here, investors are probably more fixated the fact that it's a weekend in international trade scene but, you know, the turkish situation is one that first of all
punishes all emerging markets, we saw pressure on countries such as india and argentina this week and this global trade picture is obviously one that does play very much into the u.s. economic scene when we think about coming in to 2018 seems as if there were green lights all around and the global economic backdrop was one that supported the u.s. but as we are now sort into the latter half of 2018 we think about the fact that downside risks are growing and the global trade picture is one which is weighing on prospects for global growth, so turkey is another log on that global trade fire and concerning. lauren: speaking of trade talks we have renewed trade talks next week, how critical are the talks because the u.s. still plans to move ahead with additional tariffs on $200 billion worth of chinese import, how critical and
how hopeful are you that we get something out of these talks? >> well, they're increased bli critical and incredibly important as are the relationships that we have with our trading partners in canada, in méxico and the eu and so obviously we hope that this will escalate in a positive sense from low-level talks to something more significant. at least we have plans to talk which is a step above where we were a week ago, you know, do i worry about let's say the human resource availability within the trump administration from the standpoint of needing to basically fix all of these ailing relationships which some are from self-inflicted damage. lauren: they are holding a hard line here, listen. >> we are talking to china, they very much want to talk, they are just not able to give us a deal that's acceptable so we are not going to do any deal until we get one that's fair to our
country. lauren: we might not necessarily have to cave because china's economy is starting to feel the pinch of the tariffs. >> of course, china is an important trading partner to the u.s. and president trump throwing a hail mary hoping to have significant progress, fingers crossed. it's in the best interest for the united states to have positive relationship that benefits u.s. lauren: and putting pressure on china to stop devaluing. thank you. >> you too. cheryl: generic version of epipen has been approved for use. lauren: tracee carrasco joins us with that story and other headlines. >> pharmaceutical industry beginnerric version of epipen, most widely used, manufactured by mylan sparked outrage over

people that are involved in national security levels, at the highest levels getting involved in partisan issue, this shouldn't be partisan issue, we don't hand out national security clearances to individuals like party favors as they are walking out the door, this is not for the individuals, this is for the security of our nation, we are doing background checks and making sure that people are intrigue risk and have background and experience necessary to serve our country at the highest levels. it's for our national security not for the individual's benefit, i don't believe it should be partisan issue, i don't believe -- the american people believe that you shouldn't have security clearance once you leave the service to our nation. lauren: the thinking is, robin -- >> whether you're part of bush administration or trump administration. lauren: present officials can contact former officials and get advice and that's why they have the security clearance, that's why -- right, robin?
>> retain them is for national security, they periodically need to be brought back in to debrief based on issues that happened while in service and i would like to point out that the disconnect here because, you know, general flynn still retains his after pleading guilty to a crime, so this is straight-up political retribution for people that are disloyal to the president, i see this as abuse of executive power and that's where i see the problem because the actual national security issue here is them not having them because they still need to debrief issues that happened while they were there. lauren: it's a ol orizing issue -- polarizing issue and published articles in defense of first amendment criticizing what president trump is doing by revoking clearances an threatening to revoke more clearances listen to what they
said yesterday. >> it's the group think, it's the liberal think, they all go the same way and if their editorials matter that much anyway hillary clinton would be president, mostly every paper endorsed hillary clinton for president and that's my point about editorial really not being influential for moving readers anymore. lauren: what do you think of the group thing, ted? >> i think he's exactly right and i think the american people agree that once you are no longer serving in federal government and justify to have a national security clearance that you should have one whether you are donald trump or hillary clinton, you should no longer have access to national security secrets especially when you're using clearance as justification to have partisan witch hunts against the president of the united states which brennan has done, he's going after the president on a daily basis and you can't say it's take get away first amendment rights when he
was on cable television 24 hours a day for the last 24 hours. lauren: then wrote op-ed in new york times. >> that's right. first amendment rights have not been taken away. lauren: trump admitted in interview to wall street journal that he's targeting security clearances to punish those involved in russia probe, so can you make the argument, robin, that that bolsters an obstruction case against him? >> it does and can be said too for political pardons that he's given so and i would love to know that general flynn should still retain his after leaving service and pleading guilty so, you know, that's where i see -- >> no, i don't. i don't think anybody who is no longer working should have security clearance. >> being man of your word. i still retain mine and i say
because i'm critical of this president and disloyal in his words by all means i would consider it a mark of honor if he took mine too. >> you know my brother had the highest security clearance that our government gives, i don't believe when he leaves service to our country that she should have security clearance and neither should you. lauren: like i said, the issue is polarizing and bringing up a lot of themes lately. we can talk about this for hours. thank you, have a good weekend, guys. >> thank you. lauren: he's not the first person to say that. cheryl: we have a lot more coming up next, rematch of last year's super bowl with the eagles star quarterback goes down with an injury and while colin kaepernick says the nfl conspired to keep him out of the league and one says he passed opportunity to play on team. take a look at futures after big run-up for the market, thank you wal-mart, dow down 37 in premarket, s&p down 4, nasdaq 14

sacked, nick foals had to leave the game with shoulder injury but he says he's optimistic that he will actually be fine. lauren: during game three eagle players stayed off the field during national anthem. meanwhile denver broncos gm when asked to consider colin kaepernick as backup quarterback? >> i said this a while ago, colin had his chance to be here, we offered him a contract, he didn't take it, he had a chance to be here, he passed it. lauren: this is what he's referring to potential trade that nearly materialized back in 2016 when kaepernick played last season with san francisco 49ers, kaepernick is currently involved in lawsuit in which he's claiming nfl owner and team executive conspired to keep him out of the league because of protest on the field. cheryl: maybe because he wasn't a good of a quarterback, okay, we found one umpire that isn't a fan of back flipping after home
run, watch the tigers player toss bat in the air and the umpire catches it. willful like they rehearsed it. lauren: you should try it and i will toss my pen, are you ready. [laughter] lauren: coming up trump administration is warning it may face additional sanctions for detaining pastor, what they are now saying about that too cold for camping? too hot to work? nah. this is the gator xuv835. with game-changing heat and air, it's never too anything for anything.
[simone bedward] on top of you will never receive a bill. the only thing we had to worry about was just keeping azalea comfortable.

[dr. jessica valdez] the research here is research that we share with everyone else, because overall we want to help all children that have cancer.
what makes that possible is people that give to st. jude. they really help us to fulfill our mission, and we're so grateful to have them on our team. ♪ lauren: we continue to watch currencies as u.s. warns turkey more sanctions could come if you don't release the u.s. pastor. jane foley, she joins us now, do you think turkey will cave in here? >> right now no signs that it will and back door measures that's keeping lira firm but in economics, no, in fact, turkey seems to be turning east, had economic support and russian ministers reportedly talking in turkey too but no signs yet that it wants to improve relationships with the u.s.
cheryl: are you worried about turkey's economy, are you worried and recession and possible need for bailout? >> well, we are all worried about turkish economy and inflation going to get worse because of lira, a lot of people will suffer, if turkey's economy the size of netherlands is relatively small and that should be limited, from that point of view it's hopeful but i think turkey will be awful lot of pain. lauren: appreciate the perspective. jane foley have a great weekend. cheryl: thanks all of you for watching fbn:am, we now send over to neil cavuto for hour one of six that he will be broadcasting. lauren: we counted, six hours of tv. get off the air. neil: i always keep track, they all miss maria and that's understatement. the best one i got was yesterday
